I loved this set the moment we saw it! We purchased it and got engaged. I received so many compliments on the engagement ring alone, and when we married and I started wearing the complete set, I received even more compliments. It stands out without being so large, and the sparkle speaks for itself. I love that the center stone can be changed for a larger one...maybe after 5 years we might consider...lol. The one thing I hate is when I have to send it back to update the Rhodium, I just miss having my set on!!!
Wow, words can't describe the affect of 2 Carats for your 1st wedding set. Since my husband and I were engaged the value of the wedding set has increased in value, so it is well worth the money spent to have a fabulous ring. Never in my life did I get so many compliments on my engagement ring, and now that I have married and wear the band, it stands out even more. For our 1 year anniversay, I will get the second band to complete the set...truth be told wish I had it now because it would enhance it even the more, but without it, I still love it, and appreciate my husband for selecting the best one for his queen. No other upgrades required. I am a little rough, so I have had two loose stones; however, I don't count that to be a defect of the jewelry, just my being so hard. You will love it!
